Colorful Modular Tetris Bookshelf

 

Homeowner Mario and his wife Tete, from Sao Paulo, got inspired by a Tetris bookshelf he saw online, and started designing. His piece was custom fit into his space, built by a woodworking friend.

As you can see in some of the pictures, all the parts are independent of each other so it's a modular project. I can unscrew half of the shelf and use it at another place or I can re-arrange the parts as I see fit (and the holes match too, it's a very artisan project!).
